Supervisor Steve Wilensky, also in his third year, will serve as vice-chair. Wilensky represents Mokelumne Hill, Paloma, West Point, Wilseyville, Glencoe, Railroad Flat, Sheep Ranch and Mountain Ranch.

Also during the board´s Monday meeting and after some confusion during the first meeting of the year last week, Supervisor Russ Thomas finally took his seat.

Thomas beat out incumbent Supervisor Victoria Erickson to take over District 5, which covers Rancho Calaveras, Jenny Lind and Copperopolis.

For one of his first official actions, Thomas appointed Steve Kearney to represent the fifth district on the Planning Commission.
